UK Asian Music Awards

We've been a bit slow getting round to the list of winners at the UK Asian Music Awards, which happened last Thursday - although co-sponsers B4U TV apparently won't be showing them until Easter Weekend, which makes us feel better. Imagine if ITV had had that long to shake the Brits into something televisable... although probably would have had trouble even then.

Anyway, here are the winners:

Best Act – Sukshinder Shinda

Best Album – Sukshinder Shinda – Living the Dream

Best Club DJ – Jags Klimax

Best Female Act – Hardkaur

Best Newcomer – H-Dhami

Best Producer – Swami

Best Radio Show – Adil Ray – BBC Asian Network

Best Urban Act – Jay Sean

Best International Act – Adnan Sami

Best Underground Act – Shaanti

Best Video – Jay Sean – Ride It

Best Website – Desi Hits

Commitment to the Scene – Nitin Sawhney

Outstanding Achievement – Shin from DCS

Lifetime Achievement - Heera

Perhaps at some point in the future, there won't be a single, catch-all category for 'female' regardless of what they're doing, with its implication that the very idea of a woman winning one of the other prizes is somehow ridiculous.

Until that time, here's "best female act" Hard Kaur doing My Girls:
